Easy to sip bargain brand. The nose is agave, barrel spice and some slight smoke not evident in the blanco. In the mouth this sauve without being bland with agave, barrel spice and minimal alcohol. A short finish fading to some lingering sweetness.
This is held back by the stainless steel distillation for me. Fairly simple profile of caramelized agave and some alcohol along with some slight bitterness.
At a cost of about $15 (on sale) to $20 for a 750ml bottle, Hacienda Vieja Tequila Reposado seems like a great value for the money.
Nose: some alcohol, barrel spices, cinnamon, orange peel, chocolate and caramel Flavor: hint of black pepper, oak, cinnamon, barrel spices, and cooked agave Finish: Medium long and starts with cooked agave sweetness and moves to hints of black pepper
